Event / Science Snoozeum

Science by Night

next date Dec 9

Stay overnight in the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago!

Enjoy a rare chance to explore the Museum after everyone else has gone home.

Explore the Museum's one-of-a-kind exhibits at your own pace. Participate in special activities, make your own science toys, and complete a scavenger hunt. When it's all done, sleep nose-to-nose with a 727, next to a giant heart or steps away from a toy-making factory. It's all part of the Snoozeum!
